attention to strengths at high temperatures, and he states that
iron and steel usually gain slightly in strength up to 500°, but
after 600° decrease rapidly. For the copper alloys he deduces
the maximum strength:
/ = a - b (t\ - 6o)2
where the values of a and b are as follows :
Gun-metal (cast) ...
Phosphor Bronze (cast) ... Brass (cast)
A ^ 0
Brass (rolled) ...........
A* J 2 A' I
Delta Metal (rolled) ......... Muntz Metal (rolled ) .........
Experiments are made by surrounding the specimen with a
box of oil heated by gas-jets, the measuring apparatus being
outside. (Seej>. 1074.)

P. 390. Wohler's Law.—Unwinds formula, p. 390, being
empirical, cannot be proved from first principles, so its application
will be further shewn in the next problem.
Example 62.—Two steel bars, having a static breaking load of 30
tons per square inch, are stressed in tension, the one from 5 to 6 tons
and the other from i to 6 tons per square inch. Find the actual breaking
strengths to be assumed for the respective methods of loading,
